Free Information and Advice sessions for people affected by Memory Loss
We are often told that people feel they don’t know where to know where to turn, when they first have a diagnosis of memory loss. They may receive advice about the symptoms, but not about how to continue to live well and independently, with the condition. People often report that they would appreciate talking over their options
What are the sessions for?
Anyone affected by memory loss, who would like some up to date information about what is available to help them to live well and independently at home
Bob Nelson and Christine Savage are partners in Diagonal Alternatives, and have a great deal of experience in providing assistance and services to disabled people, and their families. They will lead the Information and Advice sessions
